Growing up I remember hearing that “time flies” when you’re having fun. After becoming a Mom however, I am reminded that time will fly regardless. And that is never more true than navigating the Back-To-School season. So read on to see how I avoid chaos with quality. All while still looking forward to enjoying those last few weeks of summer with the kids!
And just what is it that makes my life so much easier? None other than choosing Ziploc® brand products to streamline our school lunches, bags, and school supplies. Organization doesn’t have to be complicated people. And with great reward member promotions and sales at Kroger, choosing quality doesn’t have to cost a fortune either.
Personally, even paying full price; I know that the overall durability in construction, Easy Open Tabs®, One Press Seal, and Ziploc® brand recyclable sustainability are worth it. Want to know why? Because one-stop shopping rocks. And even the toughest Moms know what to rely on to save time, clothes, and their sense of smell. So settle in, the session for BTS Sanity 101 is about to begin.
Label it…just a little bit.
Okay, the truth here is I’m actually writing all over it. I’m not one to gently fold in my enthusiasm. So grab a marker and get to writing on those Ziploc® brand goodies! Draw a smile, write a note, or play a word game. Scrawl instructions on how to properly reheat that snack in the microwave. I use a permanent marker on storage or freezer bags and a washable marker on Ziploc® brand Containers.
The nose…knows which brand to buy.
Hell hath no fury than the Mother that must open the sealed container of questionable ick. You know the one that gets lost or misplaced for days if not weeks? Or worse, discover last Friday’s lunch box is filled with rotting goo because little fingers don’t properly seal those other bag or container alternatives. Simply put, happy Mommas understand that Life Needs Ziploc®.
Save your sanity…your cents will thank you.
Put very plainly. There are some containers that should never be reopened. I seriously choose Ziploc® brand over other brand containers because the quality is on par. While the replacement cost is low enough that I don’t have to seriously consider sacrificing my sense of smell for resourcefulness.
Another great thing I’ve come to learn? That Ziploc® brand Containers with One Press Seal are designed to snap closed with one simple press on the lid, these containers also save space in your cabinets and fridge. And they can be recycled at participating locations.
Slide on over…to clothes storage and freezer scent salvation.
Having two elementary aged kiddos, it’s customary to leave spare clothes at the school for emergencies. From extra socks, unders, hat to mittens; I’ve found the Ziploc® brand Slider Bags are perfect for the kids to use.
The slider clasp is wonderful for easy access at any age. The freezer quality plastic is more durable for long term school year use. And when the accidents do happen, the Ziploc® brand bags will protect the mess until you get home to pop them in the washer.
More reasons to save…on Ziploc® brand products.
I’ve never been more thrilled than this school year. It will be the first that both kids are in the same school and on the same schedule. I’m even doing a happy dance over getting to buy the same supplies! All I can say is heeeeellllllooooo combo and bulk supplies packaging! Now I can utilize Ziploc® brand Snack and Sandwich Bags to tuck the proper amount of supplies into each child’s school box.
So for days, seasons, and occasions that every Mom needs to triumph over the daily chaos of life, put your cents where your sanity is. And remember that the Ziploc® brand can store food but also craft materials and other household items!
